Sophie is a writer who struggles with all the usual things: motivation, procrastination, self-doubt. She’s also a yoga teacher, and sometime food writer.
Sophie also writes short fiction and creative non-fiction; writing for the page and writing for the screen, radio or stage.
She likes rain, umbrellas, hot cups of tea and elephants. She also likes to cook and eat, garden, and wander. She dislikes it when people are mean to her (man-sized) little brothers and when birds dig up lovingly raised seedlings from her garden.
Sophie is currently a research student at RMIT University. Her research project explores, through creative practice, questions of cultural value behind everyday food waste practices. She also works as a research assistant on various other projects.
Her full portfolio is available here.
Have you read Ernest Hemingway’s memoir, ‘A Moveable Feast’? Set in Paris in the 1920s, it describes his years as a struggling young writer, living and working among other American expatriates such as Ezra Pound and F. Scott Fitzgerald. It’s a beautifully written observation of his early life. I hope it feeds your love of writing.
I haven’t, no. But it sounds like I should! Thanks for the tip.
